Corinne Mammana Corinne Mammana

Praised by JazzTimes for “superb technique”, American jazz singer, songwriter, arranger, recording artist and bandleader Corinne Mammana is passionate about preserving the music of the past while placing her own personal spin on the American Songbook, as well as popular tunes from the past few decades.

With creative arrangements sung in a sophisticated and soothing style, fans have described Mammana’s voice as a cross between Norah Jones, Jane Monheit and Stacey Kent. Her debut EP “Under an August Moon” (2016) received national praise and an interview with AXS who said, “Mammana loves the music of the past, but she just might be the voice of the future.” The EP celebrates the Great American Songbook via a four-song collection of jazz standards from the 40s and 50s, as well as contemporary songs.

In 2019 Mammana opened for Grammy nominated jazz singer Cyrille Aimée. In New York City, Mammana has performed at  Birdland Jazz Club, the Metropolitan Room and the Duplex Cabaret Theatre. She has also performed at Philadelphiaʼs Chrisʼ Jazz Cafe, the legendary Deer Head Inn, Musikfest and countless other clubs and concert halls in the region. Self-produced concerts include Jazz in the Christmas City, The Golden Age of Radio, and The Norah Jones Songbook Concert—all to sold- out audiences.

Mammana’s much anticipated first full-length album “Yes, No, Next” was released in April 2020 featuring the legendary Gene Perla on bass, Ian Froman on drums, Sean Gough on piano and Lorenzo Branca on flute and harmonica

“Her voice seems capable of pushing away storm clouds and darkness

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
